Adrenal & Thyroid Health
Adrenal Fatigue: also known as Adrenal Burnout, Adrenal Insufficiency
Dr. Pulnik has been diagnosing and successfully treating Adrenal Fatigue for over 20 years.
Get to the bottom of your exhaustion once and for all!
Adrenal Fatigue affects millions of people in the U.S. and around the world, but conventional medicine does not yet recognize it as a distinct syndrome.
At least 75% of all visits to the doctor are for stress-related symptoms. Adrenal Fatigue is usually not tested for, and is often left undiagnosed.
Adrenal fatigue can wreak havoc with your life. In the more serious cases, the activity of the adrenal glands is so diminished that you may have difficulty getting out of bed for more than a few hours per day. With reduction in adrenal function, every organ and system in your body is profoundly affected. Changes occur in your energy levels, metabolism, immune system, cardiovascular system, hormone levels and even sex drive. The most common complaints associated with Adrenal Fatigue are tiredness, exhaustion, brain fog, needing naps during the day, and difficulty sleeping at night.
Often, these symptoms are ignored or misdiagnosed as depression or a mood disorder.
Each person is carefully evaluated and treatment is individualized to your specific needs. Dr. Pulnik takes a thorough medical history and review of your symptoms and provides adrenal hormone testing via saliva, as well as other specialized testing for optimal wellness, to determine the best treatment plan for you. Regular follow up visits and testing are ordered as well.
Hypothyroidism is one of the most under-diagnosed and misdiagnosed conditions in both women and men.
Dr. Helene Pulnik offers comprehensive thyroid testing and provides safe, effective natural thyroid treatment based on your individual needs. We follow your progress with regular periodic lab testing.
An estimated 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease.
Up to 60 percent of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition.
Women are five to eight times more likely than men to have thyroid problems.
One woman in eight will develop a thyroid disorder during her lifetime.
When the thyroid is working properly, it makes thyroid hormones that regulate metabolism. When the thyroid fails to make enough of these hormones the result is hypothyroidism, which is also known as an underactive thyroid.
Hypothyroidism can happen to anyone, but it’s most common in women during childbearing years and at other times of hormonal changes such as after childbirth, peri-menopause and menopause. Thyroid disease can also run in families.
Something that men and women may share is the tendency to dismiss their symptoms, chalking them up to stress or simply aging. But getting a proper diagnosis is important so treatment can be started and symptoms stopped. Ultimately, whether male or female, individuals with hypothyroidism can be successfully treated.
Although hypothyroidism affects women more often than men, many of the symptoms experienced by both genders are the same. Here are some of the symptoms that can be safely and effectively treated using natural thyroid therapy:
- Cold hands and feet
- Memory loss
- Brain fog
- Low libido
- Decreased exercise capacity
- Dry skin
- Weight gain
- Puffy face
- Muscle weakness
- High cholesterol
- Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness
- Pain, stiffness or swelling in your joints
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Thinning hair
